Our dogs are members of our family, and we should be paying attention to the type of foods we give them. With new brands of dog food coming onto the market, we should take the time to look at some of the all natural dog food which are now available. Is this a better alternative for our dogs?

Natural dog food has many added benefits for our dogs. To start with they are extremely rich in vitamins E and C. The vitamin E helps to keep their coats shiny and vitamin C is important for their bone health. Just as we need a good supply of vitamins, our dogs do too, and these vitamins help to remove toxins and free radicals from their system.

Feeding our dogs all natural dog food brands will help keep their bodies in great shape and slows down occurrences of lung and heart disease. As well as keeping them free from other diseases or infections.

The best all natural dog food will incorporate high quality sources of fibre and antioxidants. Read the label on the dog food to ensure there are adequate supplies of manganese, phosphorous, calcium and potassium. Vegetable rich nutrients should be included with supplies of both dark green vegetables as well as those supplying beta-carotene.

When you make the switch to feeding your dog all natural food you will see improvements in their overall health. Their coats will shine more, their teeth will look brighter and whiter and their eyes will look bright and clear. They will also become more energetic and happier. So if your dog is currently on the sluggish side, maybe a change of diet is called for.

When switching your dog from their regular food to a new all natural dog food, it is wise to consult your vet for their advice first. They will probably suggest that you make the change over several days. This way you are less likely to develop any food reactions or constipation issues. Always provide your dog with plenty of fresh, clean water after their meal.

A good brand of natural dog food will be specific to their age, senior dog food is appropriate for older dogs while your puppy will benefit from a best puppy food brand of food. Ask at your local pet store what type they recommend. At first buy a smaller bag in case your dog or puppy has any kind of adverse reaction to it.

Before you know it your dog will be happier and healthier and wanting to go out and play more often. You may even be able to reduce costs associated with you dog's pet visits and dog insurance if you keep your dog healthy by feeding natural healthy dog foods!
